Spread the word knowledge. Don’t let this happen to you or your loved ones.

Terribly good

The Reggie Deluxe

Today’s breakfast: A buttermilk biscuit sandwich, filled with fried chicken, thick-cut bacon, cheddar cheese and a fried egg, topped with sausage gravy. All before 7:30 AM.

I’m wandering around Portland, Oregon this week, trying all the local eateries. This behemoth of a sandwich is known as The Reggie Deluxe and is available at Pine State Biscuits. If you’re searching for a meal that can simultaneously start and end your day, look no further.

The Reggie Deluxe

Every component of this fork-and-knife sandwich is well-prepared. Biscuit? Freshly baked. Chicken? Crispy and moist. Bacon? Thick and chewy. All the individual ingredients come together to form this super sandwich (that requires super arteries, should you choose to eat the whole thing.)

I had to travel across state lines, but I finally found a morning meal that rivals the dangerous breakfast burrito from Rose’s Cafe. Thanks Pine State Biscuits!

Learn from Annie’s Mistakes

You never know when it’s going to happen, or why it does, but you may one day become lactose intolerant. Like me.

And when you do, you’ll beat yourself over the head for all those times you didn’t stuff your face with ice cream. For all those times you said “no thanks” when the waiter asked if you had any room left for dessert. For all the scrambled eggs you made without cheese. For all the corn you ate without a nice coat of butter.

God, I just want a McFlurry!

turkey_burger_onion_rings

After eating nothing but americanos, eggs and apples for several days, I’ve been indulging in all the foods I was craving the past few weeks:

  • Turkey burger with bacon & onion rings
  • Chicken fried steak and eggs. I haven’t had this in years.
  • Crab-cake benedicts. Yes, plural.
  • Chicken tenders. What the hell is a “tender” anyway?
  • Espresso almond brownie, Chocolate chip cookies, Oreo cream cake, Bostom cream pie, Princess cake. Probably some other terrible desserts that I have no recollection of eating.

All I’m missing is the pizza and ice cream. (Together.)

Breakfast, no bed

eggs_truffle_salt_ham_croissant

I rarely eat breakfast food in the morning, but whenever I pull an all-nighter with work, I get the craving for it. So today, I made scrambled eggs with crème fraîche, topped with fresh chives and black truffle salt. Along with a ham croissant, that I mainly made to test out my new bread knife.

I’ll write about my latest kitchen gadget acquisitions later. Right now, I must get back to work… See you soon, World.

Breakfast burrito, literally

rose_breakfast_burrito

Rose Donuts & Cafe is the only place I know of takes an entire diner breakfast and wraps it in a tortilla to create their breakfast burrito. If you dare to finish the whole thing, it will surely put an end to whatever plans you’ve made for the day. Stuffed with eggs, ham, bacon, a sausage link, hash browns & cheese, it’s a giant pill of unproductiveness.

Highly recommended, as long as your affairs are in order.

Aside

I’m not sure why I bought this today. My fridge is so full right now, when I want to eat something, I have to take out 10 containers to access the food I want. Then play a game of Tetris to fit everything back in. I feel like I’m repacking a suitcase before each meal.
